    Prove it!

    I’ll start with one sentence; each hubber adds the next sentence creating an engaging and interesting story.


    I began to question myself, as the doubt sent chills up my spine I turned reaching for the door knob.

    As I slowly turned the cold copper knob, it squeaked, as if to warn me what was on the other side.

        But before I force myself to enter the door, a ghastly scream swathe the whole room.

    A chill ran up my spine my limbs froze as I held my breath

    The scream was gutteral, yet at the same time, piercing - almost primeval and savage in its resonance.

      really good use of discriptive words... awesome smile

    My heart froze still in my chest from the eerie scream, as I saw a moonlit silhouette in the corner.

  6. habee profile image92
    habeeposted 8 years ago

    The figure was shrouded in the pale moonlight and appeared to be almost ephemeral.

    My heart was pounding, it felt as if it might burst out of my ribs.

    "Am I dreaming?", I whispered aloud.

    1. katiem2 profile image62

      anybody scared yet?

  9. manlypoetryman profile image79
    manlypoetrymanposted 8 years ago

    "What did I just see?" I thought to myself, while trying to breath.

  10. katiem2 profile image62
    katiem2posted 8 years ago

    Suddenly a cold hand clamped a fierce grip on my wrist.

  11. manlypoetryman profile image79
    manlypoetrymanposted 8 years ago

    I realized how foolish I had been to enter this haunted house alone.

  12. ediggity profile image61
    ediggityposted 8 years ago

    Come here, a voice called, but I pretended not to hear.

  13. katiem2 profile image62
    katiem2posted 8 years ago

    The grasp grew tighter as I was pulled toward the other room.

  14. habee profile image92
    habeeposted 8 years ago

    My feet felt like lead as I was pulled along by the dark force.

  15. katiem2 profile image62
    katiem2posted 8 years ago

    I felt a warm glow from the other room as a longing to go inside grew deep within me.

  16. 2uesday profile image78
    2uesdayposted 8 years ago

    My mind raced as I tried to remember how they dealt with situations like this in horror movies.

  17. katiem2 profile image62
    katiem2posted 8 years ago

    Yet still I found myself walking willingly as the grip on my wrist grew gentle, warm and inviting.

  18. manlypoetryman profile image79
    manlypoetrymanposted 8 years ago

    I heard in a far away faint, yet gruff voice, "None Shall Pass!"

  19. katiem2 profile image62
    katiem2posted 8 years ago

    Quickly another hand grasp my dangling hand, I was now being pulled by two forces.

  20. Mighty Mom profile image83

    "None shall pass? WTF?" I wondered aloud.

      cool keep  it coming...

  21. Mighty Mom profile image83
    Mighty Momposted 8 years ago

    Urged forward by these two unseen hands grasping my wrist I swallowed hard, knowing intuitively where this was heading.

  22. manlypoetryman profile image79
    manlypoetrymanposted 8 years ago

    "That is very peculiar?" I thought to myself, while I could feel the grasps getting tighter and tighter.

  23. manlypoetryman profile image79
    manlypoetrymanposted 8 years ago

    "My reality must be twisted," I believed within my own uncertainty, after drinking 2 coconut chocolate B-12 Smoothies while watching old horror movies and Monty Python reruns.

  24. katiem2 profile image62

    The strange yet hauting questioned begged, "would there be popcorn?"

    1. manlypoetryman profile image79
      manlypoetrymanposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      "In heaven?"...because I think I'm about to die from total and complete fear.

  25. katiem2 profile image62
    katiem2posted 8 years ago

    Just as I had expected my heart stopped, it became heavy in my chest as all the blood rushed from my head.

  26. Mighty Mom profile image83
    Mighty Momposted 8 years ago

    Once again I was left scratcthing my head (and clutching my heaving chest), wondering who would be screaming, "Now we're moving!" and what on earth did it mean?

  27. katiem2 profile image62
    katiem2posted 8 years ago

    Suddenly the door slammed behind us as I was drug into the room, what is that horrible smell?

  28. Mighty Mom profile image83
    Mighty Momposted 8 years ago

    The assault on my senses continued, as the sickly sweet smell of decomposing flesh filled my nostrils and tested my gag reflex.

  29. katiem2 profile image62
    katiem2posted 8 years ago

    The darkness grew as I could only feel the warm breath on my neck from the figure pressing their body against me nudging me along.

      And then I woke up. But my reality was much more sinister than my horrible dream, in fact it was some crazy continuation of my dream. Blood was everywhere, and I was on the floor in the middle of it. I tried to move but...

  30. Mighty Mom profile image83
    Mighty Momposted 8 years ago

    I tried to move but...
    I was terrified of leaving footprints in the blood that could link me to ... to what, I wasn't quite sure, but knew it couldn't be good!

  31. katiem2 profile image62
    katiem2posted 8 years ago

    What is that, I thought as a cold wet blade was placed in my hand.

  32. getitrite profile image77
    getitriteposted 8 years ago

    The size and sharpness of the blade made me feel the type of anxiety that one feels while standing at the edge of a cliff.

  33. Mighty Mom profile image83
    Mighty Momposted 8 years ago

    To my horror, I saw that the wetness was the color of fresh, AB negative blood.

  34. getitrite profile image77
    getitriteposted 8 years ago

    I, hesitantly, took the sword, realizing that my former life as a ninja had finally caught up with me.

  35. Mighty Mom profile image83
    Mighty Momposted 8 years ago

    It was hard to face the reality that 700 years of ninja-ing meant nothing -- centuries of training, the supreme wisdom of my sensei -- had left me woefully uprepared me for this situation.

  36. lorlie6 profile image80
    lorlie6posted 8 years ago

    With lightning fast ninjaesque reflexes, I began to run with no destination in mind.

  37. getitrite profile image77
    getitriteposted 8 years ago

    While running, I silently pledged my Kuji-in chant.

  38. Mighty Mom profile image83
    Mighty Momposted 8 years ago

    It has kept me safe from untold horrors in the past -- would it protect me against the evils I knew awaited me down the hall?

  39. lorlie6 profile image80
    lorlie6posted 8 years ago

    My amazing running came to a sickening halt as my body slammed into the wall.

    1. katiem2 profile image62
      katiem2posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      This is getting chilling...

  40. getitrite profile image77
    getitriteposted 8 years ago

    Dazed and bruised, I felt a chilling wind begin to grow, as the shadows danced, menacingly, around me.

  41. Mighty Mom profile image83
    Mighty Momposted 8 years ago

    Chill winds were no stranger to me; but in all my 700 years I had never seen more menacing shadows!

  42. getitrite profile image77
    getitriteposted 8 years ago

    Suddenly, I now knew who had mysteriously placed the sword in my hand, and as a highly trained assassin, I knew what my mission was.

  43. Denise Handlon profile image86
    Denise Handlonposted 8 years ago

    I knew I had to move quickly with this realization before it escaped me again.

  44. Mighty Mom profile image83
    Mighty Momposted 8 years ago

    It was truly puzzling why my focus kept blurring, as realizations came to me and just as quickly disappeared!

  45. getitrite profile image77
    getitriteposted 8 years ago

    But I had to remain lucid, as I was, now, engaged in mortal combat with his mercenaries, and every swing of my sword had to be accurate.

  46. Mighty Mom profile image83
    Mighty Momposted 8 years ago

    But the blinding combination of blood and cold sweat required me to rely on instinct, as I alternately thrust and parried my way into the next room.

  47. profile image0
    Ghost32posted 8 years ago

    Which, I realized fully one tenth of a second too late, was a trap.

  48. getitrite profile image77

    Standing in the middle of the room were two ninja she-devils, with their irresistably exotic, and erotic, but deadly bodies.

  49. WuldUStilRemebrMe profile image60
    WuldUStilRemebrMeposted 8 years ago

    "oooo La la, Hey baby" cooed one of the ninga she-devils as she slinked on past with her eyes flashing a steely silver hue.

  50. getitrite profile image77
    getitriteposted 8 years ago

    Knowing that seduction is the she devil's primary weapon, I knew I could not give in to their advances, lest I would never reach my target--their master--alive!
